Bindi Irwin had an extra special 21st birthday - she got engaged!

Announcing the news on Instagram, Bindi told her followers she'd accepted a proposal from her longtime love Chandler Powell.

"On my birthday I said ‘yes' and ‘forever' to the love of my life," she wrote alongside a series of pictures which showed off her stunning ring. "Chandler, close to 6 years ago I fell in love with you and every day since has been a whirlwind of adventure and true happiness. I'm so looking forwarding to spending our forever together as your wife. Here's to a lifetime of friendship, purpose and unconditional love.—Now let's get married already!"

Chandler also took to social media to share his absolute excitement.

"Almost 6 years ago we met at Australia Zoo," the pro wakeboarder wrote. "I immediately fell head over heels for her kind and thoughtful heart that radiates so much light. Proposing in her very favorite place in the zoo, surrounded by animals, seemed like the perfect way to embark on this incredible new chapter in our lives. Bee, I love you more than anything in this world and I always will. Happy Birthday."

Bindi's new ring features a lab grown diamond and is made with recycled, rose gold metal. 

"Chandler was incredibly thoughtful when he chose it," she explained in the comments of her post. "The ring captures the essence of who I am (with its vintage flare) and our life together, with the twisted band and scattered diamonds."

The day before quite literally ringing in her 21st, her now fiancé hinted at a forever together on Instagram.

"Beautiful Bee, I love you so much," he posted on Tuesday. "You're my best friend and whole world. I can't wait to celebrate your birthday tomorrow at #AustraliaZoo. Here's to another year and beyond of life changing adventures together."
